Description of problem:
I have a USB hub in my office with several peripherals attached. When
I try and boot without this hub plugged in, the boot process stalls at
the line 'Switching to new root'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown computer
2. Unplug USB hub
3. Try and boot
Boot process stalls at
'Switching to new root'
Boot up successfully.
try as root:
# mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
OK that fixed it. Why? Am I going to have to do this again for some
no this is a one time fix :)
